Joe Kenda was an extremely successful Homicide Detective for the Colorado Springs, CO Police Dept. He explores his old cases through reenactment and gives insights into his thought process along the way. This is a show that shows the logic process that a good detective uses from the beginning of a case through to the end.Written by
Many re-enactment scenes for Homicide Hunter are shot on location in Knoxville, TN using real Knoxville Police Department officers standing in as actors. The vehicles, weapons, and equipment are the ones used by the Knoxville PD, but with "Colorado Springs" placed over the name. See more »
In the opening montage, Lt. Kenda slips his automatic into its holster, but the hammer is cocked. - For an officer, that gun is supposed to be cocked when it's holstered. The error is you can see the safety is not engaged when the gun is holstered. See more »
I've been waiting for new episodes featuring Joe Kenda, so hope there are more being filmed. This is one of my favorite shows. I particularly like the real Lieutenant Kenda's matter of fact style, and find myself quoting his "Well, my, my, my" observation quite frequently. As noted in a previous review, Kenda gives an excellent view into real police procedures, observations, and attitudes.
Every episode gives the viewer an accurate picture of how police act when a crime has been committed, from the hours of actual leg-work, to the questioning of witnesses and suspects. Lt Kenda's supreme goal is for justice, and his sympathy for the victims and family of victims is welcome. Too often shows depict police as hardened officers instead of human beings. This show provides views of the police as officers who care about the victims even when forced to cajole suspects into telling the truth.
Please, give us more episodes!
